We want you to know about the information we gather online, why we gather it and how we use it. If you have a question that isn't answered here please email us at email@example.com and we will do our best to answer your queries.
What information do we collect?
Personal information: If you request a brochure from us we will record your name and address. If you make a booking through the site we will ask you for your name and address, phone number, email address and the details of people with whom you plan to go on holiday including their gender and age.
Non-personal information: We also record, in our web logs, your "IP" address and the "URL" of the site from which you came to our website. This allows us to track the pages visitors view and for how long. We cannot gain personal information about visitors from IP addresses we record, but we can track the route of visitors through the site.
Why do we collect it?
To improve the usability of the site and to provide services we would find difficult to provide withoutit (like the shortlisting function). To plan improvements to the site and to the service we offer to our customers and to allow us to analyse the behaviour of visitors to our website.
If you make a booking we need your name and address to allow us to send you a confirmation through the post. We ask for telephone numbers and email addresses to allow us to get back to you to confirm the booking. We ask for the gender and age of other people in your party so we can inform the owner of the property you requested of the makeup of your party before confirming your booking to you.
How we use your information
We use the information you provide us with to maintain information on customers and potential customers and to refine our marketing efforts.
If you give us your email address and indicate you would like to receive emails from us in the future we will use your email address to keep you up to date with what we regardas relevant information.
How we share your information
If you make a booking via our website and we subsequently confirm it to you we will pass your name, address, telephone number, gender and age on to the owner of the property and/or their caretaker or nominated representative. We will also pass on the names, ages and gender of the members of your party. We will NEVER pass your email address or any other of your personal details or the details of anyone in your party on to anyone else unless required to do so by law. We do not, either for a fee or otherwise, make either email addresses or mail addresses available to anyone else.
You can choose not to receive emails from us and to reject cookies from our website. If you reject
cookies, certain functionality of the site will be reduced such as the shortlisting functions and the storing of recently viewed property
details between visits.
If you would like to use the online booking service you will need to provide us with certain basic information. However, you can choose to not give us the details of all the members of your party until we phone or email you back to confirm your booking.
If we send you emails or other communications as a result of you giving us your details we will always offer you the opportunity to opt out of future mailings. If you do opt out we will not send you any more.
